By The Aseciated Press
CHICAGO--Steve Huntz rip-
ped his first two home runs of
the season last night-the sec-
one one a three-run shot in the
bottom of the eighth inning that
gave the Chicago White Sox a
6-5 victory over Detroit in the
first game of a twi-night dou-
bleheader.
Mickey Lolich lost his attempt
for his 20th victory of the sea-
son in the eighth giving up a
three-run homer to Huntz,
IBosox clipped
BOSTON - Jim Spencer's
bases-loaded double sparked a
four-run first inning last night
as the California Angels nipped
the Boston Red Sox 4-3 behind
the clutch pitching of Andy
Messersmith.
Sandy Alomar opened the
game with a single off former
teammate Ken Tatum, 2-4.
A double by Tony Gonzalez
and a walk loaded the bases.
Then Spencer, who drove in
four runs in Monday night's 6-5
Boston victory, drilled a shot to
deepcenter to score all three
runners,
Jim Fregosi followed with a
single and Spencer scored when
Boston left fielder Joe Lahoud
tried unsuccessfully to charge
the ball on a play that was
scored as an error.
A's streak stopped
WASHINGTON-Don Minch-
er drove in four runs with a
home run and a single and
Frank Howard hit his 21st
homer last night as the Wash-
ington Senators snapped the
seven-game winning streak of
the Oakland A's with an 8-1
victory.
Bill Gogolewski pitched a
eight-hitter to stop the A's four
games short of the American
League record of consecutive
victories on the road. Oakland
had won 12 straight away from
home. The record of 16 is held
by the 1912 Senators.

Newsweek on "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song"
"A Van Peebles tour de force! 'Sweetback' is one of the most
effective metaphors of black degradation ever filmed. These
moments represent personal cinema at its best-one man, tell-
ing it like he sees it, his dream of liberation unadulterated
by studio pressures or commercial considerations!"
-Paul D0 Zimmerman
N.Y. Times on "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song"
"Technically, the film dazzles, is a rough diamond glittering
an inquisitive light upon a people and what is, in fact, their
own business. Van Peebles employs the camera like a
surgeonl.
Clayton Riley
Gannett News on "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song"
"It is a frantic, powerful and subjective film. Your reaction
will depend upon your feelings about the issues but you
certainly will not be neutral and untouched by it!"
--Bernard Drew
Cue Magazine on "Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song"
"I haven't had this electrifying a movie experience in a Jong
time. 'Sweetback' is certainly among the strongest portest
film I've ever seen! 'Sweetback,' which should kick up a hell
of a storm, is exciting, groundbreaking filmmaking, as strong
and certain in its art as in its like-it-or-lump-it stance!"
